This self-described “Zen liquor lounge” has settled into a role as a compact, high-end destination for style-conscious River North clubbers. It fills up quickly on the weekends and has a great rep for Tuesday nights. Most evenings, the DJs spin hip-hop except for Thursdays, which promoter Funky Couture turns over to house.
